Our Internet router is a 2800 and has 2 fast ethernet ports and 2 serial ports.  However only one of our Cisco switches has a route to it, what would we need to do to link the other Cisco switch to it as this will give us some redundacy?

Some additional info would be helpful. Are you using static routes?  Are the stacks Layer-2 or Layer-3?  Are you running HSRP (or any next-hop redundency)? Is the Internet connection on one of the FastE's or on a serial port?  Do you have any free ports on the second core?

Yeah sorry about that, they are L3 3750 switches.  No HSRP on the router.  The internet is serial so I have 1 free FE.  The second core has lots of free ports.  We use EIGRP.

Many thanks
